Lincoln – Lancaster County Genealogical Society - Courthouses, a Source of Old Records
LLCGS survey results indicated an interest in locating naturalization records, land records, vital records, school records etc. Many of them can be found in courthouses. Learn about the history of courthouses in Nebraska from UNO Professor and Nebraska Humanities Council speaker, Dr. Oliver Pollak. In addition we'll have helpful information to take home for doing research at courthouses. We'll also plan a visit to local sites with records for a "hands on" experience in finding records.
